Paul Millsap scored eight points with two rebounds, one assist, two steals and one 3-pointer during an ugly 99-84 loss to the Clippers on Wednesday.

After a big-time game in Portland on Monday, Millsap was on the other end of the spectrum. The Hawks are saying they will not be trading Millsap this month and now the Atlanta Journal-Constitution is reporting the Hawks are expected to be buyers as one of the most active teams at the deadline. Millsap has been a little disappointing, but he should still be an early-round guy going forward.

Coach Mike Budenholzer declared publicly on Monday that the Hawks will not trade Paul Millsap.

"He’s not going anywhere," said Hawks coach Mike Budenholzer, who also serves as president of basketball operations. "You can write that." Can't ask for a better source, so we'll take this as final confirmation that Millsap will spend the rest of this season in the ATL. It's a risky move by Atlanta, as Millsap can become an unrestricted free agent in July and there's a chance they lose him for nothing if he walks. However, the Hawks can offer more money and more years than any other team and must feel confident they will re-sign him.

Paul Millsap hit just 4-of-12 shots but also hit a 3-pointer and 12-of-12 free throws for 21 points, nine rebounds, five assists, two steals and four blocks in Monday's tough 109-104 overtime win over the Blazers.

Millsap hit an incredible shot to send the game to overtime and then hit some free throws to help the Hawks win the game. Portland scored the first seven points of overtime, but the Hawks responded with 12 unanswered points to get the tough road win. Millsap didn't have it tonight, yet still came through with a huge fantasy line, which puts him in elite company.
Feb 14 - 2:17 AM

According to Marc Stein of ESPN, the Hawks are "adamant" that Paul Millsap will remain in Atlanta past the deadline.

Stein adds that skepticism about the Hawks' position has been "fairly rampant," but for now it sounds like the Hawks could stand pat at the deadline. Millsap has a player option for the 2017-18 season that he's fully expected to decline, so the Hawks could end up losing him for nothing this summer unless they convince him to sign another lucrative long-term deal with the franchise.

Paul Millsap scored 25 points on 7-of-13 shooting vs. the Kings on Friday

He logged 38 minutes and finished 9-of-11 from the line, adding six rebounds, three assists, two steals and two triples. Millsap only has one block in his last six games, but there's not a lot to complain about with this line. He just turned 32 years old tonight and should have at least a couple more elite seasons in the tank.
Feb 11 - 1:57 AM

Paul Millsap scored 14 points against the Jazz on Monday, adding eight rebounds, three assists, one steal and one 3-pointer in 36 minutes.

No revenge game for Mr. Millsap. It still hasn't totally clicked for Millsap on the season for his fantasy owners. Despite a slight bump in scoring, he's seen averages drop 1.0 in boards, 0.7 in blocks and 0.3 in steals compared to last year. His owners can't realy complain too much as he continues to flirt with early-round value. Millsap turns 32 on Friday.
Feb 6 - 9:57 PM

Paul Millsap scored 16 points with four rebounds, three assists, two steals and one 3-pointer in 29 minutes on Thursday against the Rockets.

Millsap did not get much run in the fourth quarter as coach Mike Budenholzer went with the hot lineup to close out the game. It was an off night for the big man, who has hit a rough patch in recent games. He has scored fewer than 17 points in three of his last four contests, including two games with single-digit scoring. His only big performance during that stretch came in quadruple-overtime win against the Knicks. He should get back on track on Saturday against the Magic, who rank 22nd in defensive efficiency.
Feb 3 - 12:08 AM

Paul Millsap scored just nine points with seven rebounds, two assists and two steals in a 116-93 loss to the Heat on Wednesday.

This was a game to forget after Millsap's enormous 37-point, 60-minute explosion on Sunday. He also had another dud against the Wizards on Friday with four points, so maybe he's alternating and has a big game on Thursday against the Rockets.
Feb 1 - 10:43 PM

Paul Millsap was phenomenal during Atlanta's 142-139 quadruple overtime win over New York on Sunday, racking up 37 points, 19 boards, seven assists, three 3-pointers, one steal, one block and three turnovers.

Millsap had the hot hand early, and never really let up, carrying the Hawks to victory through 60 minutes of floor time. This was a solid bounce-back performance following Friday's four-point, four-board disaster, and he managed to do all his damage with a relatively modest 27.0 usage rate. The minutes set a franchise record for the Hawks, which is an accomplishment that will likely remain unchallenged for many years to come.
Jan 29 - 7:33 PM

Paul Millsap scored a season-low four points with four rebounds, one assist, one block and one steal in 23 minutes against the Wizards.

The "Joel Embiid should've made the All-Star Team" crew will be all over this one today. That said, there is nothing to worry about with Millsap as he should continue to post early-round value.
Jan 28 - 3:08 AM

Paul Millsap hit just 5-of-16 shots, 2-of-7 3-pointers and 7-of-8 free throws on Monday, but still finished with 19 points, eight rebounds, seven assists, two steals and two blocks in 38 minutes of a 115-105 loss to the Clippers.

Millsap banged up his elbow and had a few stitches before returning to the game late, but it sounds like he's fine. He was coming off a 22 & 10 double-double and is averaging 18.6 points, 8.4 rebounds, 4.0 assists, 1.4 steals, 1.8 blocks and 1.4 3-pointers over his last five games, while shooting 43 percent. If it weren't for his low field goal percentage, there would be nothing to complain about with Millsap right now.
Jan 23 - 10:12 PM

Paul Millsap needed just five attempts from the field and four from the line to get to 14 points in a 102-93 win over the Bulls on Friday, adding nine rebounds, two assists, two blocks, one steal and two 3-pointers in only 24 minutes.

That is a fantastic, prototypical Millsap line. His fantasy owners have seen shades of the player they drafted lately. In his last 11, Millsap averaged 19.5 points, 8.1 boards, 4.5 assists, 1.5 steals, 1.2 blocks and 1.4 treys. The news of him reportedly not on the block along with the Hawks going 10-2 in their last 12 is great for his value.
Jan 21 - 2:15 AM

Paul Millsap scored 17 points during a big 108-107 win over the Knicks on Monday, adding seven rebounds, six assists, three steals, three blocks and one 3-pointer.

He had a game-sealing block of Derrick Rose to get this win. Millsap didn't shoot the ball well in this game, making just 5-of-18 from the field and 6-of-10 from the line in 39 minutes. Dwight Howard (rest) did not play, which has been a helpful scenario for Millsap all season. The Hawks are also winning games and have gone 9-1 in their last 10, so maybe he stays put.
Jan 16 - 4:43 PM

Paul Millsap scored 23 points in 40 minutes during a tough 103-101 loss to the Celtics on Friday, adding five rebounds, six assists, one steal, one block and one 3-pointer.

The Hawks reportedly told Millsap he's off the block, which is fantastic news for his fantasy value. He's also turned into that stat-stuffing monster we've grown accustom to love, averaging 17.4 points, 7.6 rebounds, 4.8 assists, 1.0 blocks, 2.0 steals and 0.8 treys in his last five.
